Good. I really think we're about to find out how devious Will is this season. If so, we'll all be glad he and Alicia are no more.
Michael J. Fox guest starred again on the show. He plays an attorney at a competing firm. He and Alica were supposed to mentor two new attorneys at their firms in an arbitration but they both ended up taking over to a degree.
Fox offered Alicia a job at his firm. He said she'd be better off there because at 5:00 pm they go home, whereas at her firm, she's expected to work late hours and it's not family friendly.
As he's going over this yet again while they're having lunch, Alicia sees her daughter's called repeatedly and gone to voice mail on the cell phone. She tries to get her on the phone but can't. And the messages are unclear.
She is in a panic when her son says he's at the office, not at home, and hasn't seen his sister. (At Alicia's office, her son's been fixing their computers. A software issue.)
She goes to the school. Her daughter's friend says she left with some older man. Alicia calls Peter. No, he didn't pick her up.
At some point, Kalinda finds out (from the son) what's going on and tracks down the daughter. She was at church. (I'm coming back to that at the end.) She takes her to Alicia's but doesn't go in and tells the daughter not to mention her. (Remember, Kalinda and Alicia aren't friends anymore -- Alicia made that decision last season.)
So this all has Alicia thinking about her life. She might have gone with Fox (maybe not) if he hadn't stolen e-mails while pretending to care about her daughter. (He defends himself insisting he only stole them after the daughter turned up and wouldn't have if the daughter was still missing.)
She then goes to Will's office and tells him that this isn't working and she's sorry. They break up. Diane watches from her office and goes into Will's. She tells him he's glad he broke up (he didn't) with Alicia like she told him to.
Okay the church.
That storyline is crazy. The daughter's some sort of a Christian but it's weird. They're okay with gay people (good) but not okay with divorced people (we learned that in another episode). What the daughter was doing was getting baptized.
Have you been baptized?
You do so in front of a congregation.
Kalinda finds the daughter being baptized by that weird teenager with the curly hair and there's no one else in the church.
I expected Kalinda to register that.
I think the daughter's going to be in a cult or something. This isn't playing like a real religion.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
